Frommer's Memorable Walks in Chicagoby Todd A. Savage
Walking is the best way to get to know a city intimately, exploring its neighborhoods and taking time to savor its details and hidden treasures--so follow Frommer's for an up-close-and-personal look at Chicago. We've designed eleven fabulous walking tours, taking in the city's most intriguing neighborhoods. Each route takes a few hours and comes complete with detailed directions, suggested refreshment stops for snacks along the way, and an accompanying map.
We'll introduce you to The Loop, an open-air showroom of architectural innovation and contemporary sculpture, from the Sears Tower to works by Picasso, Calder, and Mir?. You'll stroll through Chicago's great green spaces: Grant Park, home to the Art Institute and the Shedd Aquarium, and Lincoln Park, with its world-class zoo. The Magnificent Mile tour is totally urban, full of skyscrapers, shopping centers, hotels, mansions, and commercial giants, while the Gold Coast route takes you down tree-shaded stretches of historic luxury homes along Lake Michigan. We'll also take you out to nearby Oak Park, a showcase of Frank Lloyd Wright's early architectural achievements.
Slim and easy-to-carry, Frommer's Memorable Walks in Chicago offers a wonderful way to make the city your own!
